I'm driving post 2 3/8" do you have a adapter? If not can you direct me to complete my job

Asked by: Jcarl
If you search for ground post driver you will find some useful ideas that may help you. I don't rate your chances of driving 2 3/8 tube with this tool though unless you are installing the posts in jello.

Air-Operated Post Driver is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I know anyone looking at this product is looking for it to save you time and a back ache. However... I know anyone looking at this product is looking for it to save you time and a back ache. However, I can tell you that this is only slightly better than using the hand slamming tool. After hooking up the compressor, airlines, electrical cord, etc... and lifting the tool on to the post.... it merely gives you a hit at the top of your post that would be similar to a 24 ounce framing hammer on your post. I was lucky that my ground was very moist and had better luck with the hand slammer for my 190 posts. I would not recommend it and will be returning this item.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what we hoped for We got this post driver because we thought it would be easier to sink metal fence posts with it than by hand. It wasn't. In fact, it was harder using this tool than just doing it by hand. And it was actually slower and less effective. The tool is rather awkward to use and we had problems with the posts getting bent instead of being driven into the ground. Thinking about returning it and getting our money back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Misleading The ad states,"Air Operated Post Driver" This not correct. The air only lifts the driver on the post, you still to throw the driver down. An Air Operated Driver means an air driven hammer. Not worth the cost.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Concept good but follow through POOR! The tool drove the first 26 posts just great but on number 27 the moveable valve/handle broke. The downward stroke of the handle is stopped buy a split ring that is inadequate to stop the moveable handle. The ring deformed and came out of the housing. I reinstalled the split ring but it let go again after two posts. The manufacturer needs to finish engineering the product. The idea is great but the execution is inadequate.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mediocre at Best This tool does work in as much as it will help drive posts into the ground. The emphasis being on help. The whole premise of the design is that a tube weighing about 35lb, same roughly as a manual post driver, when dropped about 18 inches onto the post being driven, will do the job. If you pull down on the driver at the same time it drops, it will work better. The compressed air just provides power to lift the driver ready for the next drop. So you do less work but the driving force does not come from the compressed air. All well and good if the ground conditions and post being driven respond to that fairly low level of impact. And let's be clear, it is quite a low level of impact and it can only be repeated as fast as the tool will raise the weight and drop it. Faster than most people could manage with a manual driver but nothing to get excited about. In practice, dropping 35lbs is not very effective. My soil is a sandy loam that is very easy to dig and should present no problems for a good post driver. It's so easy to dig that I can excavate a 3ft deep 4 in diameter hole with a manual post digger in about 10 minutes. I purchased this driver to use with 1.625" dia schedule 40 galvanised pipe that I need to drive about 24 in for use as the base tubes of a hoop house. My assumption was that when used in conjunction with a post driver adapter, basically a solid metal cylinder with a step that fits in the pipe to prevent the top edge from deforming when struck, the time and effort taken to drive the pipe would be less than using a sledge hammer. The effort may be less although I suspect not that much. It's certainly easier to use this tool and keep the pipe vertical than when using a hammer. But it's very, very slow. Just by way of comparison I timed how long it took to drive a 1 in x 1 in x 1/8 in thick length of steel angle into my soil. A very easy test really as both the cross sectional area and contact surface of the angle is small compared to the pipe or tube this tool is claimed to be suitable for. One minute with this tool and the angle was 22 in into the ground. Using a medium weight hammer the same depth was easy to achieve in 90 seconds. I'm still thinking about whether to return this. It's quite expensive for what it is and results are disappointing. I'll update this review when I've decided.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from oil it up The striker is only helpful if you oil it up. When oiled properly it can give you twenty hits in a minute enough to put in the most stubborn posts with little effort. After each posts your air will most likely be depleted and you will have to wait for your air compressor to catch up. One guy could put in a fence that he couldn't without the striker. Great product.
